No two men were more influential in the early Church than Ambrose, the powerful Bishop of Milan, and Augustine, the philosopher from North Africa who would write the immensely influential Confessions. The two men met in 387 when Augustine came to Milan to be baptised. Combining ground-breaking research with narrative verve, this gripping account describes the troubled relationship between the two churchmen, and the theological differences that would have a profound impact on the future of Christianity.
